Info about the Young Paraguayan Women's Scholarship Project

The Peace Corps, the Paraguayan Secretary of Women and the Association of Professionals and Young Entrepreneurs are working together to provide academic scholarships to thirty selected women between the ages of fifteen and thirty. Providing scholarships will increase the means by which Paraguayan women can pursue their educational studies. A series of training opportunities will be provided for the scholarship recipients who in turn would serve as representatives in their respective communities for the two Paraguayan organizations involved. The process will start by publicizing the application process including dates and contact information. Partnership is requesting your assistance in funding this scholarship program. The Paraguayan Secretary of Women and the Association of Professionals and Young Entrepreneurs are providing the means to advertise, travel, and host the selection committee for this scholarship.
